THE CHARACTERS OF THE CHRISTMAS STORY

"Unto you is born this day in the City of David,
a Savior which is Christ the Lord"

There are a total of seven chapters given over to an in depth look at the individual characters which make up the Christmas story

Chapter 1 - Zacharias and Elizabeth

This is the story of the miraculous birth of John the Baptist, a cousin of Jesus, who would eventually baptize the Lord of Glory in the Jordan River.

Also covered, from Jewish history, is the fleeing of Elizabeth and the baby into the wilderness and the murder of Zacharias in the Temple before the altar.

Chapter 2 - Mary

Mary lived in Nazareth (Netzeret: in Hebrew).  It comes from the Netzer Clan of the House of David - Netzer: meaning "Branch" in Hebrew.  Jesus would be the Netzer
(the Branch out of the House of Jesse, David's father); referred to five times in the Old Testament.

Mary was a virgin - fulfilling the Prophet Isaiah's prediction.

We also cover Mary's three month visit to her Aunt Elizabeth in Judea.

Chapter 3 - Joseph

Joseph's genealogy in Matthew's Gospel links him directly to the royal Davidic family.

Joseph was an observant Orthodox Jew; he followed the Law of Moses to the "T."

Chapter 4 - The Birth of Jesus

Using NASA's astrological calculations it is possible to know exactly when Jesus was born - on the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles, 3 BC.

Check out the miracle God had to arrange to get Joseph and Mary the five day journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem.

Discover what the manger and swaddling cloths really were.

We will also see how this observant Jewish family fulfilled the requirement of the Law of Moses following the birth of a child.

Chapter 5 - The Shepherds & the Angels

Who were these shepherds on the hillside outside Bethlehem?  They were no common ordinary shepherds.

We'll also check out the angels' message and the visit of the shepherds to the manger.

Chapter 6 - The Wise Men

Who were these "Wise Men," and what was their connection to the Prophet Daniel?

Were there three Wise Men, or perhaps many more; and what really were those gifts they brought?

What was the star they saw?  We can now, through NASA calculations, know what it was they saw; and it will happen again, when Jesus returns (Revelation).

Chapter 7 - Relevance to the 21st Century

What you do with this story will not only map out the direction of your life in the here and now; but it will also determine your eternal destiny.

God created you for a relationship with Him.  However, because of sin (rebellion against God), you were born body, soul and dead spirit.  Jesus said that unless you are "born again" - your dead spirit given life - you will never see the Kingdom of God, and you can never have a personal relationship with Him.  We'll tell you how you can have your dead spirit made "alive unto God."
